Québec has recently carried out various reforms in the area of occupational and technical training, educational policies and manpower policies, which have led to the establishment of new institutional frameworks. An important change in the role of socio-economic institutions in economic development is the adoption of a sectoral initiatives. We first describe the conceptual framework for the study of union-management co-operation and collaboration between the fields of education and work. We then review the traditional mode of regulating occupational training and present factors that, in our view, indicate that there may be a new form of regulation. Some research results regarding the structure, operation and initiatives of the committees are then presented. The paper concludes with several conclusions about what we view as a new mode of regulation, exploring the respective roles of the state and actors within the committees, and their impact on the supply of training.
